  1. when you turn on the computer green lines are on the boot screen, but go away when it finishes loads. I have a geforce 6800 and when i go under divice manager it says "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)". when i try to install or update a driver to a newer version it goes about half way through the little bar and the screen goes black and restarts the computer, without installing it. if you try to play a game it says "D3DERR_Notavalailable" which i am told has to do with Direct X. has anyone had a problem like this or have anything they can tell me to do.

    ps yes i did use recovery disk and did not work
